working thru some stuff that has been bubbling to the surface lately.
my children are getting older and they are noticing more and more things about me.
i dont want to lie to them and i do not want to hide emotions because they know. they can feel it.
so i am writing my stories down. and it is good.

title: brush from scrapgirls (freebie)


right now i am in a REALLY good place, even with all the craziness around me. our kitchen is pretty much empty, only the tile is done because we can't find cabinets that are both nice and affordable. i am making adjustments and learning to both accept and let go.
in an effort to tell my stories and document i have started a whole new chapter in my creative life. this digital journey is just beginning and i am learning more than i ever thought i could. i can't remember the last time i was challenged to actually use my brain instead of being on autopilot all the time.
take for instance this perfectly acceptable page i made yesterday. the story is there for my children and for me. the design is great and the supplies are perfect for the time frame and picture.
and then i decided to watch a video on the designer digitals blog that explained how to add a photo mat to a page. it was an easy step and it made the page look way better, i think.

so i am learning. and growing. and being HAPPY. for me and for my family. i am so excited to be in this place in my life.

Dear Paper Stuff:)

i know i tend to hoard you. Looking thru my stash i have found the most DELICIOUS pieces of you. It is almost enough to make me want to actually use you.
but not before i organize the heck out of your cousins the photo prints. and the other members of your family (empty albums and nicely organized embellishments).
                              love you always...but not as much as digital.

Today You:)

i love these pictures of my boy:))))

chilly #2:)

i had already used this kit, but i LOVED it so much i had to use it again.
Chilly kit by jennifer barrett @scrapmatters
i LIKE it!

i paper scrapped....kind of:)

I was trying out the printer to see how my digital pages would look. the look quality wasnt quite what i was looking for, so i think i will stick to costco:)
BUT. there was a great opportunity to try the hybrid thing so here is the result.

i adhered the 8x8 print to a background made from a piece of SU kraft and a piece of baja breeze pattern paper. i added a few HS chipboard pieces and journaled a little, plus added some homemade photo corners. The best things was that i was able to use up some supplies in a very easy and fast way.

this is the chipboard title....

i think it came out pretty good, no? this is totally an option!
